GlossyBox August

Hi Guys,

 Glossybox August has gone global, now I'm not sure if this is a coincidence, but I think the last two August boxes have also gone global. I think its quite a nice little tradition to carry on each year. 
This month the box has also specially collaborated with SASS, which is featured in the box, as well as having a golden ticket hidden in two boxes. Unfortunately I didn't find one, but I think whenever Glossybox runs contests like that, it makes getting your box that bit more exciting.
The amount of product actually in this months box is fantastic, with four out of the five products being full sized and the fifth is a very large trial size. I think the overall total worth of this months box is also over £53 which is not bad for the £13 price of Glossybox.
NAOBAY Calming Face Toner - £10.65 for 200ml
I was so excited to see this in the box, as I am firstly such a sucker for their packaging. It feels so heavy and luxurious, but its got such a sleek design. Anyway the product itself is a calming toner, which has a citrus scent and contains chamomile, which is definitely a very soothing ingredient. Im really looking forward to giving this a good test run. I also didn't realise the company is actually Spanish too, you learn something new everyday!

SASS Purifying Cleanser - £7 for 100ml
There was another SASS product included in a previous box a few months ago, but before that I hadn't really heard of the company. This product though is a really gentle and refreshing body wash, but also balances PH levels too.

Emite Artist Colour Powder Blush in 108 - £20.50 for 10g
Ive tried Emite tools before and I love their eyelash curlers and brushes, so Im super excited to get to try a makeup product from them now too. They are actually a Swedish brand, which have featured in Glossybox a few times and are always welcome in my opinion. This month Glossybox had a vote off between blusher or a brush, the blush won, bringing us this little guy! I'd say its a hybrid between a blush and a bronzer, making it a great multi use powder. Also because of the redish undertone to it, its going to look beautifully natural, almost like a natural tan.

Me Me Me Lip Glide in Playful Peach - £6.95
Me Me Me is a popular brand for Glossybox, but I've recently been using quite a few of their products from previous boxes and have been loving them. So I'm excited to give this one a go too and hopefully I'll like it as much as the others. It's also surprising how much of a difference there is in the look of it on the skin and in the tube. But I love the beautiful velvet finish to it as usually the more drugstore pencils are glossy.

Manna Kadar Lash Conditioning Primer - £14.55 for 4g
I think the last time I used a Lash Primer, it was a good four years ago, with a double ended cheap mascara. So I am intrigued to see how this one works, as I would rather not relive the double ended mascara days. I also hadn't heard of the American company before, but after having a look on their website it seems like quite a nice little brand. I think I may have to do some more research on how to get hold of it over here, as it seems their only stockist is in NYC!

I'm actually really pleased with this months box, It was a surprise to have such a weighty box arrive and its been well worth the subscription for this one. I'm dying to go and give the Blush and Toner a good trail run now too!

  3. I've never had one of these boxes before but it looks like you got so many nice things in it and I can't believe that it was worth so much money, so amazing! X

  4. I remember getting glossy boxes when they first came out years ago in the UK, but I have forgotten about them a bit if I am honest! This is making me want to try them again!

  5. I've recently bought into the whole beauty box thing and I must admit, I'm getting a little bit hooked. But who doesn't like a little present delivered to their door every month? I heard lots about Glossybox when they first landed but I tarnished them as being crap when a lot of bloggers stopped using them. This one looks great though, I really like the look of the Naobay toner!

  6. I'm so happy to see this post as i have been debating subscribing to glossy box for a couple of months now and i think you have just helped me decide yes! I had no idea it would be that good value as most the products are full sized :) @EmzRebel
